    TFT Ball Intake Valve

    TFT's Ball Intake Valve has a 3.65" waterway and is designed for use with 3.5", 4", 4.5", 5" or 6" hose. The 30-degree intake elbow swivels 360 degrees and has multiple positive detents. Make hose connections from any direction with minimal kinks and coupling stress. Designed for pressure or vacuum service on a pumper. Maximum operating pressure is 250 psi (17 bar). Meets 900 psi (62 bar) hydrostatic strength test. The aluminum castings are hardcoat anodized, and TFT-powder coat finished inside and out for maximum corrosion protection. All the components on the wet side of the valve are made of stainless steel for additional corrosion protection. The hand wheel needs 7 1/2 turns to open, meeting NFPA slow close requirements.

    There is a unique position indicator that shows the operator if the valve is open, closed or somewhere in between. The hand wheel is installed on the right side of the valve, but can be switched to the left side if desired. The unit comes equipped with a rugged 0.75"(19mm) drain valve to quickly drain water from the valve housing. A port for an optional air bleed valve is incorporated into the design for user friendly configurability. Hose couplings and truck connections are attached to the valve using polymer bearing rings which provide electrical isolation to help prevent galvanic corrosion. Includes TFT's new adjustable pressure relief valve with a discharge that can be directed one of four ways and meets NFPA 1901, 2009 edition. For threads other than NHT call for availability.
